Helpful Tips


Use only yellow bananas, not over-ripe or under-ripe for the perfect texture and flavour. Similarly, make sure the banana slices do not overlap when cooking in the pan, because you want each slice of banana to caramelize.

Sourdough Slices or Bagels?

This is entirely a personal preference. As I am a huge fan of the Gluten Freedom Sourdough Bagels, I tend to make this recipe using these bagels. They are soft but dense and perfect.

Peanut Butter or Almond Butter

This once again is a personal preference. Either peanut butter or almond butter can be used and interchanged.
